(excellent Trent Jones II course)
Nestled at the foothills of Mount Pulai, the Pulai Springs Resort is naturally endowed with breath-taking views and sweeping panoramas of rolling greens and undulating hills. Pulai Springs Resort is home to two championship golf courses and was once ranked as one of the World's Top 50 Golf Resorts.
The Pulai course is an outstanding Trent Jones II design. Played from the tips at 6819 yards, the Robert Trent Jones designed Pulai Course is a test for the best golfers in Malaysia. The quality, presentation and maintenance, never easy in tropical countries, is generally excellent. Beyond the course, large swathes of what was dense jungle have been cleared to make way for Johor Bahru's urban sprawl. Thankfully the housing developments do not interfere with or detract from the excellence of the wonderful Pulai course.
The Pulai Course is characterized by its ever-present and very stylish bunkering. Like its companion course, the Melana, the holes are laid out on constantly undulating, lightly tree-lined terrain. Although the good-width fairways will appeal to big-hitters, sand looms large for wayward drives and for approach shots that are either short or slightly offline to left or right. Elevated tee-boxes give golfers great looks at the holes ahead. The requirement is usually for a well-placed tee shot, and then a carefully judged approach shot to an elevated green, usually fiercely defended by a multiplicity of deep bunkering.
The front nine provides challenge in the form of a double green on the third hole that is shared with the sixth and a split fairway on the seventh. The downhill par-5 9th has the greatest elevation change, although it can be argued that the best holes come on the back-nine. Greenside water requires a very accurate approach to hit the green in regulation.
With water in play at 5 holes on the back nine, the primary task is to keep the ball dry. The par-3 13th, with its island tee-boxes lined up towards a water-surrounded island green, is one of the most memorable. The heroic short par-4 16th is laden with bunkers all-round the green from 80 yards out making it very difficult to lay-up without finding sand. Also in common with the Melana layout, the Pulai finishes with a long uphill par-4, shaped like a hook with water in the play up the entire left side and played to a heavily bunkered and elevated green.
The Pulai Springs clubhouse is designed as an ancient royal Malay palace. Vaulting roofs, exposed timber structures, ingenious use of traditional motif in the interior design echo traditional graciousness. Intricately carved wooden and stone murals with exquisite Qing antiques blend with rich themes of the Orient. Facilities include separate men’s and ladies changing rooms with lockers, rock showers, Jacuzzi, steam rooms, saunas, foot reflexology center, and golfer's terrace serving snacks & drinks.
With its 2 championship golf courses Pulai Springs is dedicated to providing the discerning golfer with an unmatched Malaysia golfing experience.
You can also combine this golf course with other courses for your next golf holiday.
